£80m office block cleared for Cambridge city centre
An £80m office development in the centre of Cambridge is set to go ahead after the city council gave it planning permission.
The One Station Square office block, directly opposite Cambridge railway station, has been designed by architects Pringle Brandon Perkins+Will and structural engineer Mott Macdonald for developer Brookgate.
The six-storey building will provide 129,000 sq ft of open-plan offices with 12,000 sq ft of retail space on the ground floor. It forms part of CB1, the planned new city quarter in Cambridge.
Brookgate chief executive Sven Töpel said: “One Station Square is the latest Grade A office scheme to get the go ahead at CB1. The building offers corporate occupiers the opportunity to take modern space in Cambridge’s city centre with unrivalled connectivity to the transport network.”
The building has been designed to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating. The energy strategy developed by Hilson Moran is based on passive design measures, with high-performance facades, maximising natural daylight and low energy lighting.
